original neapolitan pizza!

The pizza here is really neapolitan and is really good: soft, crispy pasta and all fresh top quality ingredients. I am very picky with pizza and mozzarella on it and here they use the real fresh mozzarella and not that dubitous "semi-fresh" and "semi-hard" already grated cheese. I certainly... read more

We came here after a weekend in Milan. The pizzas are nice but nothing special. We paid 90CHF for 2 pizzas, 1 dessert and 1 bottle of wine. The wine list is particularly bad unfortunately: only 5 reds, all very young and priced at 35-65 CHF. One in particular was priced at 38CHF which you can pick up at Carrefour... More

I ate 3 times Here. In 2 cases the pizza wasn't cooked enough and during the night it looked a bit heavy. Prices are at Swiss levels where I think is not fair considering that pizza is one of the cheapest meal in the world. Try the pastiera cake 'homemade' but expensive. To be improved

The restaurant is located in a lovely place at the margins of the centre of Lugano. In summer, from the terrace you have a great view of the lake. We get a pizza and fried fishes. The pizza is different from that you usually get at a restaurant in Ticino: in this restaurant you get a Neapolitan pizza. The tomato... More

Loved the pizza at Neapolis ... closest I've had to Roma pizza in a long time. Good vibe with a view of the lake outside. Everyone seemed quite happy with their food in the entire restaurant. Their white pizzas looked great as did the other items coming out of the kitchen! Highly recommended!

While staying at the Villa Castalugano, we wanted to have pizza and a movie night with the kids and this place is a block away. Amazing wood fire pizza, great service and friendly staff. I would make a return for a sit down meal to take advantage of the views.

We randomly stopped here for a late night dinner. They have a limited menu (mostly pizzas) with a few specialties. When we were seated we were told if we wanted a pasta to speak to the chef.
